Diversity: Only Speaking for a Portion of Graduate School – Emory is an academically competitive private university. Especially in a math-science heavy focus such as biostatistics and epidemiology there is a high proportion of Asian students. Overall, there is a diverse group of folks across the programs especially within the Global Health track yet there is a large population of young, white females. Although, I didn't feel it as much among the graduate programs, there is an air of wealth spread through the undergrad campus.

Majors: Excellent Instruction, Best Opportunities – Emory and CDC offer the best public health experiences while in school. Faculty are most likely collaborating with someone at CDC and when working at CDC they are aware that your classes are your priority. This means that you get a superb applied learning experience without the weight of time balance commitment between school and work.

4 College Junior

Majors: Totally Changed My World – This was the most difficult academic achievement of my life to date but I would do it again in a heartbeat. The amount of knowledge and expertise that is available through the public health program specifically for epidemiology is nearly limitless. Through networking and hard work, you can work with leading researchers in an area of your choosing.

4 College Junior

Majors: Relatively Painless – If I remember correctly, the entire application process was entirely online. A web-based program that allows one to complete a single application but send it to multiple schools, if needed. Then you were able to monitor your application status on this website as well as through an Emory-specific admissions website.

5 College Junior

Majors: CDC Graduate Student Researcher Internship – As a public health graduate student at Emory, every budding epidemiologist wants to get a taste of the epicenter of public health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. I was fortunate enough to assist a team that was working in exactly the area that I am interested in and in collaboration with my thesis advisor. This experience allowed me to apply and conceptualize the foundational material I had been learning in the classroom.

3 College Junior

Transportation: Great on-Campus...Not So Much Elsewhere – Emory's transportation is great around campus, but to the greater Atlanta area, it lacks. There are Emory Experience Shuttles that run during the weekends, and they used to have buses to the airport for winter break, but other than that there aren't too many options, at least that I know of.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: Resourceful Library – The library at my school is beyond what I've experienced before. It provide a multitude of resources from electronic journal and books to more than enough study space. The staff is always friendly, and helpful, going above and beyond to assist me to find particular books. I was never really that student who'd go the library frequently, but with such an experience, I plan to study here as often as possible

Parking: There is limited parking provided. For a school that as so many students I would expect them to invest in that. If parking is not available in the parking deck behind the school, then you'd have to pay an expensive fee to park at areas like Egleston Children's Hospital.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: Practicum Opportnities – My school has provided me with practicum experience in which I also am able to make an income. Being that graduate programs are more intensive than undergraduate ones, it was recommended that I did not acquire a job while in school. So, the fact that I am able to make money while full-filling my practicum requirements, makes me happy that I chose this program.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: Tight knit community with professors who teach as well as do research how the major focus for the professors is teaching. Leadership Programs are outstanding. Small campus, get to know everyone; 2 year Associate Degree at the end of the 2 years and prior to moving to Emory University Main Campus.

5 College Junior

Scholarships: If you get accepted, you will get enough funds to attend...only a handful of universities offer that option.

Diversity: Many Whites, 20-30% Asian, 7-12% African American, 7-10% Latino – Emory University is increasing the minority students yearly. The university attempts to attract a diverse group of students annually and it is successful.

Technology: The computers have a variety of software that help

Parking: Why So Expensive – Emory is expensive enough as it is. Freshman year you cannot even have your car on campus. Parking is 660 per year and sometimes you cannot even find a parking spot.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's Not That Bad – Emory is constantly making new housing available for it's students. As freshman and sophomore you have to live on campus. The best dorms as a freshman are Hamilton Homes, Longstreet, Turman, Few and Evans. These are themed housing (Green, Community, Creativity, etc.) Dobbs is also themed, but you definitely don't want to live there. Dobbs has a great location on campus, but it is very old and the rooms are extremely small. I lived in Harris, it was one of the older dorms, but all in all it was okay. As sophomores you can live in Woodruff, Clairmont, Complex, Clifton, Alabama, or one of the freshman dorms as a Sophomore Adviser. All these dorms are great except for Alabama because it is very old. Clairmont is on a separate campus only about 2 minutes away, you can basically walk there, but that campus has a pool, tennis court, basketball court, volleyball court, and is where the student activity center is located. Junior and Senior year students can live off campus, at the Clairmont Campus, or apply to be Resident Advisers at any of the dorms.

Majors: Awesome Resources – I am a Neuroscience and Biology Major at Emory University. I am very satisfied with the program. The professors have office hours and truly care about you being successful in class as well as in your life after college. The workload at Emory can be difficult, you cannot do things last minute and expect to do well here. Most professors are involved in some type of research so if you become close to a professor you can ask them if you can assist with research. There are also many programs that can give you information on job opportunities and internships available. I know that work study students can work at the Center for Disease Control which is located right next to campus. Yerkes primate research center is located nearby and you can research there, and the Emory campus is right on campus.

Majors: Neuroscience and Behavioral Biology the Fun Stuff – I do not regret my path at all. Emory is a very challenging program and to get a degree in science just adds to the difficulty, but it's worth it and it' definitely doable. The most challenging class I have taken so far is General Chemistry 1 and 2. The reason that class is so hard is because it is a premed weed out course. My major will help to expose me to the different types of sciences and which one I would like to further explore. I want to have a career as a scientist. The labs at Emory have been helping me with this. Faculty, staff, and students work together everyday to discover new things and put their findings out into the world. I know that this experience is definitely preparing me for my life's work. The Career Center at Emory is also great because they help you find what best fits you and let you know who is hiring and can definitely help you find what you are looking for.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Lots of Options – Emory is stuffed with a variety of facilities both in and outside of the classroom. It's got a wide range of majors, which is convenient for those who are unsure of what they intend to major in. Since the graduate colleges are also popular, the school is also well-equipped to deal with your future ambitions.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Not Much Variety – On-campus dining-wise, you have essentially 2 choices. There's Cox Hall, which has fast food options like Chick-fil-A, burgers, and sushi. Then there's the DUC, which is where freshmen will eat most of the time. The DUC is essentially the cafeteria, with glorified cafeteria food. You can get a good meal there, but the quality is never spectacular.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Make Smar Choices – The drug scene at Emory is based on your desire to access them. If you avoid drugs and associate with likeminded people you will have no problem.

Academics: World Class Education – I came to Emory because I was interested in pursuing a career in International Relations. The knowedgeable faculty, world-renowned guest speakers, and accesibility to amazing resources allow me access to a great educational experience. The professors are always willing to help if you show the interest.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Apartments Are Expensive – Apartments are pricey but they usually are near colleges. They are, however, cheaper than Emory housing. This past year, students were not guaranteed housing so some of my friends were "homeless" for a couple months before they found a place to go for the upcoming school year.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I received a generous amount of grants from Emory. However, this does not explain the increased price rise in everything... from dining costs, to tuition and room/board.

I, however, love Emory and the faculty/staff are world-renown. Therefore, I am thankful for the education and opportunity to learn under them.

2 College Junior

Administration: I do not think that the campus is too strict about drinking. Even though they know hazing and other frat parties go on, they don't seem to do much about it.

4 College Junior

Diversity: Mixed School Enviorment – there are a lot of different people that go to Emory !

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Emory provides for a very unique and rewarding college experience. With the prestigious and academically rigorous University paired with the entertaining and lively city of Atlanta, your experience at Emory will certainly be a memorable one. You will be forced to work hard during your time at Emory, but you will hopefully see the benefits of this shortly thereafter. Many find Emory's celebrated diversity a blessing as well as a curse, as sometimes the various minorities or student groups become extremely cliquey and exclusive, leaving some students feeling left out. But for most this feeling does not last, and they quickly find their group of friends and people who they truly care about. There is a niche and group for everyone at Emory, but sometimes it can take a while to discover where exactly it is.

While the tuition rates at Emory are some of the highest in the nation, many students look back after a few years and feel that their time at Emory was well spent, literally and figuratively. The school has tons of invaluable resources to offer from the million-dollar facilities to the world-class professors, and your experience is truly what you make of it. The city also has an unlimited amount of opportunities and resources at each student's disposal as well. Both Emory and Atlanta have everything anyone could ask for and more, and until you realize this, you will not be able to fully understand the blessing of attending Emory.
